Stellantis owned American brand Jeep has unveiled their first all-electric SUV. This was announced on the 1st of March during Stellantis’s Dare Forward 2030 strategic plan presentation. The CEO of Stellantis group, Carlos Tavares unveiled the images.
However, the company has not disclosed any further information regarding the SUV, including its name. The SUV is likely to debut at the beginning of 2023.
What do we know about the Jeep electric SUV?
Apart from a couple of images, the company haven’t disclosed anything. On the outside, the SUV looks bulky and very aggressive. In the front, it has Jeep’s traditional 7 slot grille with blackened headlights. The dual-tone yellow-black colour scheme goes really well with the car.
The blackened diamond-cut alloy wheels, the placement of the rear taillight and the rear diffuser looks similar to the Compass SUV. The dimensions and proportions also seem to match the Compass. But according to reports, the new all-electric SUV will likely be built on the STLA platform. This is 1 of 4 platforms developed by the brand for all its future electric vehicles.
Jeep’s electrification plan
Jeep will start its electrification phase from the launch of the new all-electric SUV in 2023. They have also promised to launch a BEV in each of their segments by 2025. Currently, Jeep sells a few of its SUVs in plug-in hybrid avatars (4xe) across the globe. The Jeep Wrangler 4xe and the grand Cherokee 4xe is sold in the US market. The Compass and Renegade PHEVs are sold in the European market.
The parent company Stellantis has planned almost 25 BEVs to come by 2030 and aims to double their revenue in this period. This will be achieved through all of their subsidiaries and other partnerships they have secured. Fiat, Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep, Maserati, Alfa Romeo, Citroen and a few other major car brands are under their belt.
Jeep India are strengthening their lineup in the country. We recently saw the Compass Trailhawk coming back to the market. The company is also planning to introduce the 7-seater Meridian SUV in May. Also, the brand is likely to bring in its flagship SUV, the Grand Cherokee to India.
